Chronicle of Thailand

About The Book
Chronicle of Thailand is the story of Thailand during the reign of King Bhumibol Adulyadej. Beginning on the day he was crowned, 9 June 1946, the book presents a vivid eyewitness account of Thailand's development through the major news events of the last 64 years. Offering a grandstand view of events as they unfolded - the coronation of Rama IX, the suppression of Communism, the Vietnam War era, the October 1973 uprising, economic boom, great sporting moments, cultural firsts, unforgettable tragedies - and quirky aspects of daily life that just happened to make the news. Along with a year-by-year review of the major news stories in Thailand, there is also a timeline of international events, including developments in other pasts of the region. The book features thousands of rare and fascinating pictures and illustrations, representing one of the most comprehensive photo collections of Thailand ever produced. Research sources for the book included Thai and English-language newspapers. Photographs too came from a variety of archives. Interspersed throughout are cartoons, advertisements, album covers, film posters and other visual material, that greatly enliven the 'slice of life' the book provides.
